Let’s Talk: Blogging Burn Out?

blogging burn out.png

You may have noticed that I haven’t been around much this month. Well, that’s because I experienced the dreaded Blogging Burn Out. I love blogging, starting this adventure has been one of the best decisions of my life. So why on earth have I not wanted to even think about doing it this month? I’m not entire surely, but I have some vague ideas as to why.

Overwhelmed by My Reader and Comments

When I first started blogging I never expected it to go anywhere. When someone followed me I immediatedly followed them back. Eventually it was just getting too much for me to keep up with. I didn’t want to unfollow anyone because I know how awesome it is seeing that you gained a follower.

I don’t want to sound ungrateful or discourage interaction, but I also started getting overwhelmed by the number of comments I’d get on some posts. I want to reply to everyone, but sometimes I’d have 30 or 40 comments to reply to. Believe me, I know how this sounds but I really like giving genuine comment replies and I just didn’t have the energy.

I would put off commenting and reading posts because I needed a break and then they’d just keep building up and building up to the point where it actually made me anxious. I have severe social anxiety that extensed to interactions online.

It takes hours to reply to posts and comments and again, don’t get me wrong – I love reading everyone’s posts an comments, but  I was starting to feel physically drained looking at my inbox.

Putting Too Much Pressure On Myself

It’s hard not to compare yourself to others. I’m definitely better at it now, but I still have moments were I feel like I’m not good enough. My blog lacks original content and I’m trying so hard to change that. I’m not the best at thinking of things though. It’s taken me ages to come up with the few original posts I have on here.  I rarely, if at all, schedule posts because I don’t have the attention span to sit there and write up several posts a day. I see people who are extremely organised and it just makes me feel like I’m not doing a good enough job. In my mind it was just easier to not post at all.

No Time To Read

I felt like I was blogging so much that I actually had no time to read which kind of defeats the purpose of having a book blog.

My Attention Span or Lack Thereof

I have a non-existent attention span. It affects just about every aspect of my life. My anxiety really messes with my ability to focus. It’s impossible for me to just sit here and write a post. I’ve honestly been distracted from this current one for like nearly 2 weeks. I’ve been trying to write a post about being a distracted mood reader and have been to distracted to finish it.

I Opened Up a Society6 and RedBubble Store

I was really focused on getting those up and running this month. It takes a lot of time to create a design. Sometimes I’d be on Photoshop and Illustrator all day trying to get things to look how I wanted them to, which of course put blogging on hold. I suppose this is the same for bloggers who are writers. When inspiration strikes you just have to roll with it and everything else gets put in the backseat.

Real Life

Yep. Real life decided to be really inconvientent this month. I’ve either been sick or not at home. It’s not always easy to blog on the go.

sep

So….. What to do about it?

Unfortunately, there is no easy answer. Even now I’m still feeling a little burnt out. I keep telling myself that I need to blog hop, but I just don’t have the energy. I did however find a few things that helped.

  • Take a break runaway with us for the Summer, let’s go upstate, we can all go stay with my father, there’s a lake I know. I gaurantee your followers will understand. Taking a break is a much better option than burning yourself out to the point where you don’t want to ever blog again.
  • Go through your following list and unfollow some blogs. It’s not easy and I felt guilty, but sometimes you just have to. There’s no point following someone who posts nothing you’re interested in or who you’ve never interacted with. Instead of immediatly following someone back take a look at their blog and see if it interests you.
  • BINGE NETFLIX. I haven’t been able to watch a TV show for ages, but this month I binge watched 4 shows on Netflix. It was really nice changing things up.
  • Write up some posts that don’t take a whole lot of effort. Is this lazy? Probably. But again, it’s better than burning yourself out completely. Do some tags. Make a list.
  • If you’re stressed about how many reviews you need to write, post some mini ones. Make a GIF reaction review. Or just write bullet points.
  • SERIOUSLY TAKE A BREAK!!!

sep

At the end of the day, even though I want to take my blogging as far as I can, I do this for fun. It’s a hobby. I don’t want blogging to feel like a job. I just keep reminding myself of this and it helps a lot.

I’m sorry that I haven’t been so great at this whole thing lately, but November is a new month and I’m hoping to get back into a routine. Thanks for sticking by my and my blog ♥


Have you experienced a Blogging Burnout? What did you do to help get over it?

I hope you’re all having a fantastic day xx

  1. No worries, sweet Lauren–it happens to ALL of us! I’ve been feeling a bit burnt out myself…and I have nowhere NEAR the level of interaction on my blog that you do here! (seriously, how you do that?! You rock, that’s how!)

    Lately I’ve been feeling guilty because I’ve fallen off the “blog hopping” bandwagon. I know this is partly why my interaction levels have fallen so far–I KNOW I need to get back into the swing of things–but the thought is just SO overwhelming. That, and I’ve had an intense reading month–SO MANY review requests and review obligations I had to get to in October, oh my!

    Really though, it’s okay to take a break when you’re feeling stressed/burnt out–we miss you, but we get it! You take care of YOU, and come back when you can. ❤

    1. Thank you, Beth! You were one of the first bloggers I interacted with and you’ve been so wonderful to me! I’ve definitely been failing at the blog hopping aspect too, but I don’t think we should feel too guilty because life happens sometimes. It’s so great being in a community where everyone is always so understanding!!

  2. I took a two week break because I needed it. After two weeks, I felt so much more refreshed. I’ve gotten a lot better at following blogs too. I don’t follow everyone that follows me, I just can’t do. I’ve gotten extremely picky about blogs I follow in terms of the content that is posted. Some advice for reviews, you could always switch to doing a comprehensive wrap-up at the end of every month, that way there’s not as much pressure to post a review. Just keep track of your thoughts on the books you read after you read them.

    1. I’m so glad taking a break worked for you! I feel like it’s slowly starting to help me, haha. Yeah, with reviews I’m thinking of posting a lot more rapid style ones. They’re fun to write, easy for people to read and don’t take up much time!

  3. Oh man, I didn’t read a single book or write any reviews the entire month of August. It got to the point where I had 3 Top Ten Tuesday posts in a row because everything else took too much energy.

I’m really proud of you for coming to terms with the fact it’s okay to burn out and take time off when you need to. ❤ you come first, always.

  4. Hi Lauren, I just want to say that I totally understand that sometimes you need to take a break and I think most bloggers understand that. I don’t think non-bloggers can really understand, but this is really time-consuming! And it should never feel like a job – we do this for fun so it should stay fun. So when things become too much, a break is the best solution. Everyone will still be there afterwards 🙂
    I know I also get overwhelmed sometimes with the pressure – the need to bloghop and to reply to every comment, the need to create more original content, post more, create graphics that don’t look like a 4-year old made them (uhh, still working on that 😉 ) and then find time to actually read some books, let alone do other real-life stuff. It’s a lot and it’s not always possible to keep up with. I’m trying to find ways to balance everything myself, but lately I’ve been discovering the like button. Sometimes I just don’t have time or super interesting things to say and I feel like the like button is still a small way to let the blogger know you read and appreciated their post without wasting 20 minutes trying to come up with something interesting to comment….
    I’m also a fan of the Netflix-binge break! But any break works (Also, Hamilton, YAY 😉 )

Also I’m working on my book right now so I feel a little guilty about not reading and blogging. Anyways,Great post Lauren!❤

  6. I agree with everything you’ve said Lauren and I think a lot of people can say the same. I also get really anxious about replying to tons of comments and I love leaving genuine comments too, so seeing an inbox full of comments leads me to procrastinate sometimes.
    I actually went through my followed blogs the other day and unfollowed some and I agree that it makes me feel kind of guilty BUT these were blogs that I followed who never seem to post anything and as much as I hate to say it it’s just not worth my time if they never post or interact.
    Great, thoughtful post! 🙂

  8. I just started blogging and already I feel really overwhelmed. I used to go to every blog that I follow and reply to every comment the moment they came in. I don’t do that anymore. I take my time to do whenever my life asked me to, and reply in the nighttime or whenever I can, so that way it will be good. I scheduled and drafted few posts at random so I won’t have to worry. I get worried too much. I am a worrier. I find this method helps truly.

    Take care of yourself and enjoy life. I love your post. ❤

    No but more seriously though, take it easy and take your time. You should always remember that we all do our thing differently so the fact that you don't do what might work for others doesn't mean what you're doing is wrong.
    And also, especially if it doesn't help with your anxiety, take a step back! Your health comes first, you should really take care of yourself before anything. We'll be waiting here 😀

  12. I relate to this so, so much. I feel like I’m at the precipice of blogging burn out, but am mitigating it with choosing to go out with friends instead of staying home and blog — not that there’s anything wrong with the latter! Lately, I’ve noticed that I don’t read as much too. The only time I ‘read’ is when I’m listening to my audiobook while cooking or on the bus. :/
    For me, there are some days where I struggle to reply to ANYONE and days where I can reply to all the comments for hours. More often than not though, I’m the former.

    My last burnout was earlier in the year and I took 3 months off! It was so good though, and the break was good for me. 🙂 I came back with renewed energy and a better idea of what I wanted to achieve!

  13. OMG Lauren you have no idea how much I relate to literally everything on this post (save for the store one, haha).

    I also unfollow people, and I do it quite liberally, I think. And this might sound bad, but my main criteria for unfollowing is more “interactiveness” rather than “interesting content”, i.e. if I’ve commented on their posts a lot and never, ever get any reply, or they don’t reply to anyone ever, I’m quite inclined to unfollow that person. I know time is limited and such, but I also have limited time, and I prefer to use that time to interact with people who are interested in interacting back, you know?

    Also Netflix is life. I’ve been binging SO MANY SHOWS lately and relying so much on drafted posts bc I’m just too busy this month. Hope you feel better and get over the burnout eventually. 💕

I haven’t been able to read as many books as I wanted to either, it’s so upsetting…You have great advice though! I might consider taking a hiatus and working behind the scenes for a little bit. I just don’t want to let anyone down you know? Good luck with your own blogging burn out issues, I hope it gets better!!

  15. I’ve been feeling this a little bit too lately. I think part of it is just that my depression is acting up which makes me have absolutely no motivation to do anything. I’d rather watch paint dry than do something that requires me to think even a little bit hahaha So yeah I totally feel where you’re coming from! I just try to keep reminding myself that it’s okay to take a step back and do other things. If blogging starts feeling like a stressful obligation rather than a fun hobby, it’s time to give it a little bit of a rest 😛

    I also feel guilty about un-following people. I use both WordPress Reader and Bloglovin, and I’ve come to realize that there are a few people who just write about books I don’t care about, or who review in a style that I can’t stand, etc. etc. But I love seeing people follow and comment on my blog so I feel awful about unfollowing others. 😦

I recently did this with a post about blogging pressures so I totally understand where you’re coming from, specially when feeling like my blog isn’t as good or that I don’t have enough original content. I’m so sorry to hear that your anxiety is that crippling but I hope it gets better and not manageable for you. I know I sometimes struggle with that as well. I hope you know that I consider you a friend and that I’m always around if you want to vent or chat about something ❤️

  20. I go through these all the time unfortunately haha. What I feel I’m mostly guilty of, is not interacting enough with other bloggers. There’s not enough hours in the day to actually take some time, check other blogs, leave some comments. Interacting is very important, and I sometimes feel I’m missing that bit. Having time to sit and finish a blog post is hard work too. I have a list of ideas and projects I want to include in the blog but it has been difficult to complete them. I’m also a Designer so I have some other projects going as well, including tidying up my Etsy shop, getting a page for my design services linked to etsy and my blog and, oh I also need to write a post about them because that was part of the deal to get 20 free listings. I usually make a to-do list but I feel overwhelmed all the time too. I also feel I don’t have enough time to read (I try to get as much reading as I can on the train), playing games, watch movies, and write about other stuff on the OTHER blog I have with my boyfriend. Then, there’s my full time job, which it’s not busy and interesting all the time, and I sometimes think I should be home taking care of my million of projects haha. Oh and it’s November, so add NaNoWriMo to that…noooo.

    So, all of this to say, that yep, I feel overwhelmed too. I think the best advice I can give is try to relax a bit, and treat the blog as a hobby (because that’s what it is, in the end of the day, for me at least) and do the best you can. Because if you do your best, no one can really say anything. Also, I’m a bit jealous that you get so many meaningful comments; as I said I am a bit guilty because I don’t have enough time to properly interact with other bloggers. I also love your blog, and I think you have a super nice writing style, making it really easy and fun to read your stuff 🙂
    I’ve written something similar before about how difficult is it to manage a blog in this post here: http://www.nyareads.com/2016/06/12/writing-diaries-5-how-to-juggle-writing-blogging-and-a-long-distance-relationship/ (Thank God I’m not in a LDR anymore, but the rest remains the same )

    Your blog is fantastic and you have provided plenty of original content, so don’t be so hard on yourself. I stopped comparing myself to other because it didn’t lead to anywhere good 😦 Now I just do whatever I am able, even if it’s just reviews, Q&As, and a few other other things here and there. I want my blog to be around for a while, so I can’t always produce original content, and that’s OK. Anyway, keep taking care of yourself and being awesome.

  23. I’ve never suffered blogging burn out but I can’t imagine it’s a nice thing to go through, especially if normally you do love blogging. I hope after a little while, a break or a major Netflix binge like you said, you’re ready and refreshed to get back onto WordPress again.
    All the points you said I feel every now and again. There are days when I just feel so tired I can’t write a post or reply to comments or comment on other’s people’s posts. Not because I don’t love interacting with people or anything but just because my real life has exhausted me so much. I think when it comes down to it real life is a major thing that gets in the way or blogging and reading, but I need my day ob to be able to afford books so it’s a necessary evil.
    I love all the points you’ve come up with. I’ll definitely be trying a couple of these when I next feel a little burnt out. 😀 And I hope things start looking up for you soon as well Lauren! ❤

  24. I feel like this is exactly what I’ve been going through lately. Not only did I hit a terrible reading slump and had problems being able to stare at a computer screen for too long but I physically have had no energy to blog. I haven’t wanted to blog or write reviews or anything (which might have attributed to my reading slump). I’m like you and have a terrible attention span (ADD doesn’t help) and so I’ve found it impossible to get into scheduling posts. I’ve done it a few times but I’ve never been a solid organizer and have felt the same way in regards to thinking I was doing a terrible job blogging because I’m so disorganized. It really is hard sometimes but I feel like we just have to put ourselves above blogging when that happens. It’s like you said – take a break and binge watch some Netflix. (I suggest a horror movie marathon. That’s what I’ve been doing. 🙈) Don’t let it stress you out too much, Lauren! *hugs* 💕

I’ve noticed too that sometimes I’m blogging so much that I’m hardly reading, which seems backwards! And there’s always Netflix, which is made for binging and sometimes I’d rather just binge than write a lot of crap up ha ha. So yeah… totally get it. 🙂

    Plus replying to comments does get surprisingly hard. I’ve found myself having the same problem- getting behind- and sometimes I just go visit the blog rather than reply to everything because time becomes an issue. It happens. Anyway great tips for dealing with burnout!

  27. Ohhh I totally feel you Lauren! I was in a blogging slump earlier this month and like you I was sad because I never want to get tired from blogging 😦 and also like you, when I first started blogging, I immediately replied to all comments and followed everyone back but lately it’s getting really really tiring! Most comments are so long and thouhgtful (WHICH I TOTALLY LOVE) but those comments also take longer to process and reply and also I like to visit back everyone’s blogs and drop some comments in return and it could take a while :’) so I almost always end up postponing altogether hahaha 😦

    And yes to watching series as its solution!! I love k-drama and I’d been spending my time binge watching new and my favorite k-drama 😛 it was refreshing hahaha but now I can’t stop watching :’)

    As of my other solution, I always try to keep some posts on my draft, ready to publish whenever I don’t feel like writing anything haha and taking a ste back is always a good idea 🙂 I do hope you get over this burn out soon and come back to us! We’ll always welcome you Lauren ❤

  28. I don’t get as many comments or followers as you do, but even then I do feel stressed when I see a ton of comments popping up. So I can’t imagine how you must be feeling. It’s not just the comments that I reply to, but I try to visit their blogs and leave a comment there too. And I’m so bad at it that it takes me ages to think of a good comment or reply that I feel like hours has passed by the time I’m done and I’ll feel exhausted at the end of it. I’m actually feeling slightly burned out at the moment, so I’ll be taking a week’s break for the first week of November, both to relax and to focus on NaNoWriMo.
    I hope you bounce back stronger than ever and slip right into your routine 🙂

  29. I could cry some legit tears after reading this post! I can seriously relate, I think I’ve been on a blogging burn out for the last few months, that or I really don’t have the time to blog. I’ve only been posting like 2 blog posts a month, and that’s because I don’t have the time and energy to write posts as much as I want to and like you, I also have a very short attention span. I seriously don’t know how some bloggers can stack-up like 10 posts in one sitting while I, on the other, can’t even finish a book review in an hour!

    I also did an unfollow-spree a few days ago because 90% I found myself refusing to open my WordPress because I know that my Reader would be blown-up and super overwhelming, and the commenting can be really really draining especially because I like to leave out long comments (like these ones lol) and they take some minutes to write. I can also relate with the anxiety when commenting/commenting back, I always obsess if what I said was okay, was it logical or reasonable…it seriously can be stressful!

    Sighs, blogging should be fun! And it is, but there are days when it’s not. One more thing that I hate is when I stop myself from reading another book because I still have too many book reviews to write…and that’s frustrating because I blog because I read not the other way around!

    Anyways, hopefully we’ll both get off this horrible thing soon! I really like your tips, I’m honestly considering to put up mini-reviews but I still need to think about it. Happy reading and…blogging, Lauren! ❤

  30. I’ve fortunately never really had to worry about burn-out since I have a co-blogger. There was a year when I couldn’t post much, but my co-blogger took care of the reviews. Then there was a time she couldn’t post as much, so I kept up the blog. What with having to post, comment, respond to comments on your own blog, do graphic design, keep up with social media, etc., it’s really too much for one person to handle. (Or at least too much for me to handle!)

  32. I completely understand! I just got back from a month (or two, depedning on how you look at it) hiatus, and I was experiencing serious blogging burnout. It definitely helps to make sure you’re not following gobs of people (although in a perfect world I would love to) and just make sure to not pressure yourself too much. Everyone else understands!

  33. I feel you! I’m so glad someone expressed this feeling openly because I think there are many of us with the same thoughts. I’ve already stopped automatically following people who decided to follow me in an effort to make it more manageable for me. I try to reply to comments and read other people’s blogs but I often run behind on that last one too. I often feel guilty about it but I just don’t have as much time as some other bloggers. We can only just try to do our best right.
